YOUTUBE IS BADLY BAKED
February 8, 2011
YouTube is baked; its video forms and conventions badly done. We’re stuck with corporate media-like “stunts, pranks, violence, gotchas, virtuosity, upsets, and transformations.”
Sure, every video holds its own small surprises and variations, but this is expressed in a vernacular and melody with which we are already comfortable.
